Lesson Objective(s) (Stated in observable and measurable terms) Following a completion of at least 3 volunteer hours in a community-based service setting, the student will be able to create a visual presentation utilizing Photostory, to demonstrate his or her participation, the need for the project, and how they were able to contribute to the project, using a minimum of 10 photo slides accompanied with narration, with 90% accuracy. Assessment Plan (What will be done to determine if lesson objectives have been met?) The student will be assessed using a teacher-made rubric based on presentation expectations. Materials: Digital camera or smart phone with camera capability Computer Notes projector Inclusion Techniques for Students with Special Needs: Students who need extra support in using Photostory will be given help. Enrichment Techniques: Students who have a working knowledge of Photostory will be permitted to add additional components such as music, titles, etc.

Lesson Differentiation (What modifications/accommodations will be made to ensure that ALL students have access to and are able to participate in the lesson): The students who may have a difficult time with verbal presentations and/or using photostory, will be required to present 6-8 slides and will be given a modified rubric.

Lesson Presentation
Introduction/Motivational Activities/Anticipatory Set: Students were shown a utube video of Paying it Forward prior to beginning their project and papers. The students will view my example

Photostory as an introduction.

Detailed Teaching Sequence: (Provide sufficient detail that would enable a substitute to effectively present this lesson. Bulleted statements are preferred) 1. 2. Following a viewing example of Photostory, we will review as a class, a rubric of the elements that should be included in their presentations of Photostory. The students were asked to take many pictures during their time volunteering (from beginning to end) so that they will be available when we go to the computer lab to begin putting presentations together. They were instructed to bring these photos to class today on a flashdrive. 3. 4. 5. 6. In the classroom, I will demonstrate how to access Photostory and review how to begin each step of adding photos, titles, narration and music. During our second half of class, student will go to computer lab to begin their presentations. They will be given the second half of class today and class tomorrow to complete their presentations. This is a TAG class, so the student will have a total of 128 minutes to complete the project. As students complete their finished products, they will be asked to raise their hands so that the teacher can preview them.

Guided Practice/Independent Practice/Assessment Activities At the computer lab, the teacher will proceed step by step on how to access Photostory, insert photos, titles, etc. Even though the teacher showed them the process in the classroom, many students will still need step-by-step assistance. Closure: If students are not finished by the end of the second class, they will be permitted to use the computer lab after school with the teachers assistance on Tuesday only.
